About the book:
Amid the dangers of the Civil War, Valerie Fontaine longs to know she is loved and safe. Her father, however, is cold and withdrawn. And their Christian houseguest, the photographer Benjamin McCabe, starts to fall in love with her. But her father, against her wishes, is prepared to sell her into a loveless marriage with someone else. Will Valerie be forced to abandon her newfound love? Or will she and Ben, against the backdrop of this country's most ruthless war, become in their own way, unwilling warriors?

My Review:

I thought this was a good Christian historical novel. There were no war scenes so no gory stuff in it. It was not preachy but had a theme of trusting God. I liked Valerie and Benjamin's love story. A sweet civil war historical that held my attention from page one. I can't wait to see what book two in the series holds. Highly recommended for fans of Christian historical fiction. :)
